Aaron Klein, the Oregon man who with his wife Melissa ran Sweet Cakes by Melissa, said on Tuesday that he will not be silenced when it comes to speaking about his Christian faith and how it informs his belief that same-sex marriage is wrong.
In addition to being ordered to pay a $135,000 fine to a lesbian couple after refusing to bake them a wedding cake because of the Kleins’ religious convictions, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries commissioner has told the Kleins to “cease and desist” their discussion on the case.
“We’re going to continue to fight,” Klein said in an interview with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” radio program on Tuesday. “And quite honestly, despite this cease and desist – this gag order in effect – we’re going to continue to speak out on this issue. Now I’ve warned about this for quite some time – that if our most fundamental freedom of religion can be trampled in this pursuit of a fabricated right to same-sex marriage – that the attack, the trampling of our freedom of speech, would not be far behind,” Perkins said.
